    The gods are just, and of our pleasant vices
Make instruments to plague us.

    Her voice was ever soft,
Gentle, and low,—an excellent thing in woman.

    Vex not his ghost: O, let him pass! he hates him much
That would upon the rack of this tough world
Stretch him out longer.
          King Lear. Act v. Sc. 3.

    That never set a squadron in the field,
Nor the division of a battle knows.
          Othello. Act i. Sc. 1.

    The bookish theoric.
          Othello. Act i. Sc. 1.

    ’T is the curse of service,
Preferment goes by letter and affection,
And not by old gradation, where each second
Stood heir to the first.
          Othello. Act i. Sc. 1.
1760
    We cannot all be masters, nor all masters
Cannot be truly follow’d.

          Othello. Act i. Sc. 1.

For daws to peck at.

1765
    Most potent, grave, and reverend signiors,
My very noble and approv’d good masters,
That I have ta’en away this old man’s daughter,
It is most true; true, I have married her:
The very head and front of my offending
Hath this extent, no more. Rude am I in my speech, 1
And little bless’d with the soft phrase of peace:
For since these arms of mine had seven years’ pith,
Till now some nine moons wasted, they have used
 
Note 1.
Though I be rude in speech.—2 Cor. xi. 6. [back]
